Magic user specializing in necromancy. In particular, Bloodwynd has the ability to speak with the dead, and return them to haunt those who wronged them in life.
Wears the so-called "Blood Gem", as well as other gems, on his costume. It is known that the Blood Gem, at least, gives him additional—if unspecified—mystical powers.
Bloodwynd is the descendant of slaves formerly owned by a man named Jacob Whitney. Whitney himself was killed when the slaves created a magical stone called the Blood Gem and used it to murder the slaveholder. What they did not realize was that the Blood Gem was a gateway to another dimension, and a demon by the name of Rott took possession of the souls killed by the stone's powers.
Rott actually pulled Bloodwynd into the gem and forced the Martian Manhunter to wear it and impersonate the necromancer. Blue Beetle figured out the deception during the battle with Doomsday when Bloodwynd was hurled into a fire that incapacitated him despite the fact that the real Bloodwynd had no vulnerability to heat or flames.
Bloodwynd was created by Dan Jurgens.
